West Clare Cancer Centre

For the provision of cancer care services for the people of West Clare.


The organisation was founded in 1998 by William and Mary McGrath to raise funds to support cancer patients living in West Clare. The inaugural event, a sponsored walk from Carrigaholt to Kilkee, with just 24 participants, was such a resounding success it henceforth became known as "The West Clare Mini Marathon".  It has become a West Clare landmark event, held annually on the last Sunday of January, and is synonymous with community spirit at its very best.

Falling as it does on the last Sunday of January, with the excesses of Christmas cast off and Spring in the air, people embrace the event with a renewed sense of energy, vitality and kinship.  Rain, hail or shine, the day of the event is a joyous, festive occasion and is a testament to the indomitable human spirit, a community working together towards a common goal, united against a common enemy.
